Hi! My name is Derek Skinner. I am a hardworking and dedicated individual with over 5 years professional working experience and a Bachelors degree in design. I love the challenge of connecting people with brands and keeping users engaged. Coworkers have described me as someone who is devoted to projects from initial concept to final delivery.I am currently looking for new opportunities. I would currently prefer remote work and/or relocation outside of the San Francisco bay area, but I will also consider SF positions if I feel it is the right fit. If you're curious, find out more about me.
I feel that I have a passionate connection to design and problem solving. I love the challenge of connecting people with brands and keeping users engaged. I believe that all good design starts with a solid concept.
Like design, animation is another way to express yourself, and to connect your brand with its audience. A well thought out animation pops off the screen and delivers a memorable message to the viewer.
I taught myself coding skills to allow me to make my designs come to life in the form of interactive websites or prototype apps. From my past experiences, I have found that transforming a static design, to a functional thing is a very rewarding experience.
